2011's First Finished Projects
So there's my finished CD-in-the-bottom market bag, which is a pattern I definitely recommend. It worked up easily and well, and once I got into the rhythm of the treble crochets, it was something I could do while also watching TV---in this case, the first series of the BBC's Being Human, which I liked a lot. There's so much vampire/werewolf/paranormal whatever narrative around at this point, and this show (which has a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost all sharing a house in Bristol) was in interesting take on it.
this (excellent) pattern, this was my first attempt at this kind of colour change where you have to carry the unused colour along on the back, and while it definitely took getting used to---there was a lot of ripping out a few stitches and going back to pick up the other colour, which I'd forgotten about---it was fun. I've always said I'd never make an afghan, but after doing this square I'm not so sure...
But first, a hat! Which I think I'll go work on right now, while watching Dexter. I saw the pilot the other night, and whoa. So effectively creepy, and Michael C. Hall is amazing. And the south-Florida setting is perfect for some wishful winter watching. (See also: Burn Notice. I wonder if my library has season three yet...)
